Apple kicks off fourth beta of watchOS 9.5 for developers

Two months back, Apple started testing watchOS 9.5 on compatible watches. Today, the company has released the fourth beta of upcoming watchOS 9.5 for developers. Apple announces the new beta alongside the incremental iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and tvOS updates. Read along to know more details about watchOS 9.5 beta 4.

The fourth beta is small in size and weighs only 189MB, compared to the 461MB of the third beta. Apple is pushing the new beta with the 20T5560a build number. Thanks to the small size, you can quickly update your watch to the new beta. If your watch is already on the third beta, then you may have already received the fourth beta.
